Being a Washington native and longtime blackberry pick- er, I would bet she was referring to the little wild blackberries, which begin in June, and are still available although just approaching the end of: the season. We used to say when we were kids that the blackberries biggest picking was the Fourth of July. But I notice out here oa Harstine Island that many of them, especially those in shaded locations, are still producing. I in- tend to go out one more time today• These are the small ones that grow on vines on the ground, with a very delicious tart flavor that makes excellent pies. The large bush blackber- ries are later - closer to August, and were not even picked when I was young as they don't have the tart flavor, and have very large seeds that need to be screened out."
